BLACK MATTERS is a project created by students of the English Department of the University of Zurich, Switzerland. It showcases our insights after a semester of engaging with African-American culture in depth. With this virtual exhibition, we would like to share our deep admiration and respect for the experiences, struggles, performances, expressions and narratives of Black people in the USA. 


Each room presents a different perspective on Blackness in the USA. You can start from any point and explore at will. We wish you an informative journey through this virtual space! 


You can watch an introductory video with some background information here.
